US President Joe Biden, whose re-election campaign is at a precarious point, said he remains in the race and vowed to defeat former President Donald Trump again.

Biden said as much , speaking to supporters in Wisconsin, which is considered a swing state, Voice of America reports.

Some Democratic lawmakers privately – and increasingly publicly – There are concerns that Biden, 81, no longer has the mental acuity and physical stamina to take on Trump in the four months remaining before the election, let alone govern the country for the next four years.

Biden, however, reassured the audience of about 300 people: "I am running and I will win again..

"I beat Trump, – Biden said emphatically to cheers from the crowd. – I'll do it again.”.

It was a big day for Biden. He needed to demonstrate an energy that he sometimes lacked, especially during his disastrous debate with Trump last week, when Biden often lost his thoughts, confused his answers to questions from two CNN moderators and failed to prove why he and not Trump, should become the leader of the United States in the next four years.

Two major American newspapers, the New York Times and the Washington Post, recently wrote that Biden's mental lapses have become more frequent in recent months, and some Western officials noted his apparent breakdown at the recent G7 summit. in Italy.

Biden played up his gaffes by quoting one of Trump's campaign remarks when he said, “George Washington's army won the revolution by taking control of the airports from the British.”

When the crowd laughed, Biden added: "So don't tell me about my reservations.".

Most Democrats support Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, but some believe it would be better for the party if Biden drops out and Harris takes his place.

The Democratic Party will hold a convention to formally nominate the candidate. as early as August, leaving the party little time to decide on its leader.

At least three House Democrats have called on Biden to withdraw from the election.

Rep. Seth Moulton voiced his concerns in a radio interview Thursday, joining Reps. Lloyd Doggett and Raúl Grijalva in calling for an alternative.

“President Biden has done tremendous service to our country, but now is the time for him to follow the example of one of our Founding Fathers, George Washington, and step aside to allow new leaders to rise up and take on Donald Trump,” Moulton told WBUR radio.

Without going that far, Massachusetts Gov. Maura Healey said in a carefully worded statement Friday that Biden needs to decide “the best path forward.”

“I urge him to listen to the American people in the coming days and carefully evaluate whether he remains our best hope for defeating Donald Trump,” Healey said. – Whatever President Biden decides, I am ready to do everything in my power to defeat Donald Trump".
